Assistance from the Air
Fast rescue, gentle transportation
A helicopter has been permanently stationed at the Trauma Center in Murnau since October 1994. Since then almost 13,000 rescue operations have been flown and more than 13,500 patients have been assisted from the air.
On August 1, 1999 ADAC Air Rescue Inc. took over the station under commission of the Bavarian Ministry of the Interior. The emergency intensive care transport helicopter is equipped with a pilot, a winch operator (who is also a rescue assistant), intensive care specialist and a paramedic. Since all winch operators of the unit are also rescue assistants, they are also involved in the medical care as an addition to the physician and intensive care registered nurse/paramedic.
